Reading through the BOC thread on the main woot site, it seems like a lot of people didn't even get their three craps. My Box of Curiosities is being delivered today. I've prepared myself so that I am not too disappointed. After all, it is supposed to be crap.

Pretty sure you should just be happy you got a BOC...in the end, you are still buying crap.

Mine's coming tomorrow... its 2.8 lbs, so I know there's not going to be anything big in it.

In defense of crap, ColonelCrap said the changes wouldn't happen right away. Now if people didn't even get three craps, that's just wrong.

I think you're having your hopes up far to much for a BOC. Stop complaining, think of all the crapless people out there. I've only ever received one.

I know that somewhere I've wronged karma, because I'm always in a staff meeting or some other form of meeting during the Bandoleer of Carrots.

I get it is supposed to be crap. And I also get that le colonel said it would take time. It's just being a member for so long, I have seen a steady decline in what the BOC stands for. It's the principle of the matter. When was the last letter included in a BOC? And even then it was a crap TV. When was the last Pallet of Crap? When did the BOC start becoming an assembly line where the same crap was stuffed in 99% of boxes? And no, I don't expect something for nothing. But I do expect crap that is all my own. At least through in a reckoned shirt instead of a blank one you haven't even printed. Don't make most of the BOC items that were in the woot off for cheap, that ruins the suprise. Make it special again.

Be thankful you got just got a Box Of Crap and not a Box Of Crap that's INFESTED WITH BUGS!

(Seriously ... Santa's sack BOC came with free stowaways.)

Man, you people suck at following the crap commandments.

THE HOLY CRAP COMMANDMENTS v3.0
I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond ONE bag of some kind and THREE crappy items.
II. Thou shalt not whine and complain when some people’s crap turns out to be nicer than yours.
III. Thou shalt take a moment to consider whether you might be better off just not buying this crap.

IV. Thou shalt not expect better crap just because things are different this time. Crap is crap.
V. To paraphrase Stephen Stills, shalt thou not get the crap you want, want the crap you get.

My 1.9lb bag is still in transit.

I'd be happy with anything as I've never gotten a BOC.

That aside, your bag sounds decent. Why not wait until other people post what they got before you decide that your bag is the same as everyone else's?

Compared with a lot of the Craps over the past year, you actually came out with a decent haul.

My 2.5lb had:
1 Black Duffel
2 XL Tees (maroon, pale yellow)
1 Discovery Kids dinnerware designer

Is this considered 3 items?
